Description

This is the final report of a one-year Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The People`s Republic of China will be moving toward considerably increased use of motorized vehicles over the next human generation. Estimates are for a fleet of 100 million vehicles or more. Large increases in ozone and other types of pollution associated with automobiles will result and this will have significant impact across Asia and into the Pacific. In this project the authors have taken a continental scale approach in a two-dimensional photochemical model to estimate the ozone concentrations to ... continued below

Large increases in ozone and other types of pollution associated with automobiles will result and this will have significant impact across Asia and into the Pacific. In this project the authors have taken a continental scale approach in a two-dimensional photochemical model to estimate the ozone concentrations to be expected. Potential levels of nitrate/soot in aerosols and increase in carbon dioxide are also discussed. Major pollution problems are forecast for the Pacific Rim if Chinese projections for their automotive sector are realized.
